They think the poor have it easy. I guess that’s why so many of them became poor under the Bush administration.
So apparently a lot of what cops do is completely unnecessary. Nice of the police union to prove that point for us.
CNN is doing the honors this year. Mickey Rooney was a particularly short person who died this year.
This is a quote from the Wikipedia entry on guitar pickups:
….the humbucking pickup was invented by Joseph Raymond “Ray” Butts, but Seth Lover of Gibson was also working on one himself. Ray Butts initially developed one on his own and later worked withGretsch. Who developed it first is a matter of some debate, but Ray Butts was awarded the first patent (U.S. Patent 2,892,371) and Seth Lover came next (U.S. Patent 2,896,491). Ultimately, both men developed essentially the same concept, but Ray Butts was never recognized as the one who produced it first.
I wonder why? Say you’re developing an ad campaign in 1955 for cool new noiseless guitar pickups. Here on the one hand you have an inventor named “Lover” working at Gibson, and on the other you have a guy named “Butts” working for Gretsch….
We have Dish Network and so could not follow the elections on CNN, as they are no longer available due to a contract dispute. We tried to watch on Fox News, but couldn’t make anything out because of all the semen that was flying through the air in the studio.
